Curating Zanele Muholi: in Conversation with Sarah Allen

16th November 2020
16.11.2020 - Zanele Muholi

Born in South Africa in 1972, visual activist Zanele Muholi came to prominence in the early 2000s with photographs that sought to envision black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives beyond deviance or victimhood.

Muholi’s work challenges hetero-patriarchal ideologies and representations, presenting the participants in their photographs as confident and beautiful individuals bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance and, frequently, violence. Tate Modern presents the first major mid-career survey of Muholi in the UK. Learn more about this ground-breaking new exhibition with co-curator Sarah Allen.
